Both Teams to Find the Net

Montpellier is 8th on Ligue 1 and looks comfortable with four matches to play. However, the hosts have failed to keep a clean sheet in the last eight Ligue 1 games. They welcome Saint-Etienne on the back of a 3-1 defeat on the road last weekend. On the contrary, Saint-Etienne has had a mixture of outcomes in their last ten Ligue 1 games and managed only two clean sheets on the road within that duration. The visitors conceded an average of two goals per match, which could see them concede more than Montpellier in this fixture. Our first prediction is for both teams to score in this fixture.

Over 2.5: Yes

Another value bet on Betfred is at least three goals in Montpellier vs Saint-Etienne fixture. While we expect both teams to score, a winning outcome is a likelihood in this game. Saint-Etienne visits Montpellier after two consecutive defeats, during which they conceded a total of five goals. Six of the last ten games for Saint-Etienne have had more than two goals, four of which were defeats.

More than One Goal in First Half

We are also predicting goals galore in the first half. We reason that these two teams have been scoring and conceding goals lately. Moreover, Saint-Etienne is looking for points and the only way out is to find the net. Back to back losses for Saint-Etienne and now a fixture on the road could further pile more pressure on the visitors in their search for safety points. Montpellier lost 3-1 to Nice last weekend. We expect a fairly open match where both teams will score some early goals.

Preview:  Montpellier Looking to Win the Double

Saint-Etienne lost 1-0 in the reverse fixture. Montpellier is safe going into the final games but can the hosts win both legs this season?

Montpellier

Before losing 3-1 to Nice last weekend, Montpellier had gone 15 games unbeaten. Could it be the beginning of poor results? Well, the hosts are comfortable in 8th position and have little to fight for with four games left to play. It could mean that complacency is taking roots in Montpellier’s squad after a tricky season. It is why we are tipping on goals rather than a straight win for either side.

Saint-Etienne

Saint-Etienne conceded the only goal in the reverse fixture early in the first half. The visitors travel to Montpellier with two consecutive defeats. Thus, turning things around to win the reverse fixture is a tall order for the visitors. The visitors have lost eight games, won six and drew thrice on the road. Moreover, Saint-Etienne has been quite good on the road, winning three and losing two of their last five away games.
